Sam Hurley is a great story. This guy came out of nowhere and built a social media empire of sorts. How did he do it? He helped others. While he really focused where he presented his expertise (specifics blogs, etc.), he was also more than willing to hold out a hand to lift others up along the way on his meteoric rise to social media stardom. That can go a long way. Definitely check this guy out.
